Dick Hill did a good job near rating and using inflection, and accents to get the characters life however in the preceding three books, the main character was pronounced "Kay-lin" but he changed it to "Collin". Frustrating that this MAIN character wasn't consistent with the other narrator's pronunciation.
Other than that, great job. Far better than Jim Bond!
Only giving four out of five stars is not a mark against the narrator Dick Hill.
Maybe in the future, have narrators listen to the first few books in a series.
That way they would know how to pronounce names.
Yes, it may seem asinine but, seriously how can something so simple be overlooked by the narrator, the person paying the narrator, etc.al.
Don't you guys have editors or the equivalent of quality assurance inspectors?
Love the book and story. It was like fingernails on a chalkboard every time the narrator mispronounced Kahlan's name. Was quality control sleeping?
At first I was pleased that the books are episodic and with an overarching story line. I could count on the books wrapping up to a decent conclusion before the next book started the next episode.
Unfortunately as a consequence it feels like each story has become formulaic and additionally it has become frustrating for me that every book the main characters seem to get screwed at every turn in the beginning just for things to work out at the end by luck rather than deliberate effort by the protagonists. I agree with another reviewer that it would be nice for the protagonists not to get screwed and instead have them struggle on equal terms for a book or two. We'll see.
I enjoy them enough to continue (and I have, I've the read the next few books and they have been similar). I may have to take a break soon though.
Great story. These books never slow down there are just enough characters to follow to keep the story interesting and not make it complicated to understand. I do wish the narrator would listen to previous stories and use the same pronunciations.
